What's your favorite Paleolithic megafauna?

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 October 2019 - 10:06 PM)

Together with the Rhino G1 sets, probably the most expensive DVDs I ever bought

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 October 2019 - 10:01 PM)

I've still got the age-old Rhino sets

@  Telly : (14 October 2019 - 09:09 PM)

i didnt find that at any of the ones around here, so i had to settle for seasons 1 and 2 of duckman for $3

@  Steevy Maximus : (14 October 2019 - 07:45 PM)

Heck, I got the season 2/3 set for $3 (?) from a Dollar General discount bin :p

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 October 2019 - 07:29 PM)

The series is pretty cheap on DVD, too, which at least will work internet or no. The complete series set seems to be OOP, but there's a Season 1 set as well as a combined 2 & 3 set.

He dubbed the peoples that saw him as bad news cannibals and savages before enslaving and wiping them out too.

@  wonko the sane? : (14 October 2019 - 01:40 PM)

And if they had been unfriendly: he would have simply slaughtered them with diseases they couldn't fight, and technology they couldn't match until they as a people did not exist. There's something about european backgrounds that drive us to exploit.

@  Rycochet : (14 October 2019 - 11:02 AM)

He described the peoples he encountered as some of the most friendly and giving in the world, so naturally, he ate all their food, enslaved them and put them to work looking for gold that did not exist, until they as a people did not exist.

I think it's more jarring coming from Nintendo, but I think the pricing is "fair" relative to competitive products.  I think the Fighter's Pass is definitely showing its value in that you'll save on the Mii Costume junk.  But I'm also not sure how much that's going to present as value to some.

 

I think the online sharing and user creation stuff is FAR more interesting that the costume stuff in and of themselves.

As someone who buys most of my games digitally, the price is very nice as you can pick them up "Free" pretty easily. So I have no complaints about the Mii costume prices.

Yeah Mii costume prices are totally reasonable. Although some seem to be just heat parts while others are full on outfits and hair.

HO-LEE SHIZZNAKS! I just had the most AMAZING victory.

 

So I'm playing online quickbattles, and I've been doing rematches in this room that's been having constantly 4 players join (my favorite type of match) And the whole time I've been in this series of matches this player that was using gannondorf has been cleaning up, it was victory after victory with him. Anyways It's me (as mii Fighter) Gannondorf, Wario and Young Link in a match. Somehow I manage to last till it was down to me and gannondorf each left with one stock left each. I'm trying to get the upperhand by jumpin around but gannondorf always is one step ahead of me. Finally I get launched pretty far off the platform and ganondorrf leaps off after me (it should be noted that I have zero off platform skills) 

I see ganondorf...

I see the edge...

I hesitate and in that moment I miss my chance to reach the edge of the platform. 

At this point, it's over, I'm sinking, Gannondorf is sinking too but above me so I'll be the one going out of bounds first.

It's over, I've lost...

BUT THEN! practically out of instinct or desperation, I use my up special and catch gannondorf in an upward kick. this was enough to launch him in a smash attack and he goes flying upwards and hits the underside of the Platform... then BAM he slingshots at full speed in the opposite direction and goes out of bounds a split second before I would have and I won the match!

I just tried the VR. It takes a heck of a resolution hit. But still, it was pretty impressive being able to see far past the ends of where the screen usually ended. There was jut so much to look at that I really just kinda let the CPU do its fighting while I looked at everything. I'm not sure it's a mode I'll use too often, but it's fun to mess around with it if you have the VR Goggles already (as in, don't get them just for this one game). Just, do yourself a favor and don't do a stage where they fighting platforms fly throughout the stage (like Skyloft). I got dizzy, even kinda nauseous.

Don't care about DQ at all, but it's fitting since it's one of the most enduring series since the NES. Banjo-Kazooie hits the spot, but I have a lot of nostalgia for that game and I'm disappointed the reveal didn't include ports to non Xbox consoles.

I admit I'm confused why they didn't use the DQ1 hero, though.

It showed III, IV, VIII, and XI as the playable costumes. All the rest appear to be used in the final smash.

 

I completely get III, VIII, and XI. III's hero is the legendary hero Erdrick of the first three games, so he's a good choice to represent them. VIII was a huge success that gave the series new life outside Japan, so he's an obvious choice. And XI is the latest game that's getting a Switch release this year.

 

The one that I'm maybe a little surprised by is IV. I don't have any objections to him, but I'm curious why they picked him over I or one of the SNES heroes. Maybe it would be obvious if I'd ever gotten around to playing the Zenithian trilogy. I'll get to them some day...

Personally, I'm a little surprised DQ V didn't get picked instead of IV...but it does give the fighters a little more variety, since otherwise they would all look kinda samey.  IV's green hair and crown breaks things up a little.

So yeah, Nintendo was apparently aiming their E3 Direct, directly at me. I will buy this game, the DQ DLC, and a Switch to play it on just for these guys! I am super stoked for them to come out on the game and I am really hopeful that all four will get an Amiibo!

 

And why they choose DQIV's hero is easy, It is an extremely popular game and the first of the Zenithian Trilogy.

Yeah, I was aware it's the first game of the Zenithian trilogy, but I guess I'd never seen anything to indicate it was any more popular or better received than any of the others. E.g., reviews on Metacritic seem to show it about on par with VI and less well received than V. Sales figures shown here don't show it being out of line for that era of the series.

 

Of course, neither of those are really indicative of how the fan base will view them. And as much as I've enjoyed the games, I've never been much of a participant within the DQ fandom. I think I've posted at woodus a few times, but that's been about it. I'm guessing you mean within the fandom that it's particularly popular?

 

I'm curious, do you know if the Japanese fandom also regards it so highly? If I ever had noticed IV being singled out among the Zenithian trilogy, I probably would have attributed it to the fact that it's the only one that was released in English during its original run. The fact that V and VI were so hard to find when the DS versions were translated didn't help either, I'm sure. I know I had to hunt for them for a while to find them once I learned they'd been released.
